No visit to Victoria Falls would be complete without a tour of the mighty falls themselves, otherwise known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning the smoke that thunders. A knowledgeable guide will take you on an unforgettable experience through the Victoria Falls rainforest, a journey that not only affords a view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World but provides a great deal of interesting facts about the geology, wildlife and history of Africa’s most famous landmark.

Half day rafting on Zambezi river Half day rafting on Zambezi river

You will be collected from your hotel to begin a half day of adrenalin pumping white water rafting through a series of rapids. The rapids on the Zambezi River are officially defined as “Grade 5” by the British Canoe Union. Lower water levels are experienced from August to mid January and higher water levels are seen from mid January to the end of July. A thorough safety briefing takes place before the activity commences and you need to be reasonably fit for this activity in order to cope with the rigours of rafting, as well as the fairly steep walk into and out of the Batoka Gorge.

Special dinner aboard the Royal Livingstone Express Special dinner aboard the Royal Livingstone Express

You will be collected from your hotel in the Falls area to be taken to the Royal Livingstone Hotel (unless already staying here), where a fleet of luxury vehicles will take you short road transfer to the Old Mulobezi Railway Offices where the train is stationed. Photo opportunities with the locomotive ‘in steam’ will be offered, before drinks and snacks in the Lounge Car.

At about 5:30/5:45 pm : the train will depart and move directly onto the Mulobezi Line, travelling through a high density suburb of Livingstone called Dambwa and onto the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park while the sun begins to set.

The train will then pause at the entrance to the game park with the possibility to view some of the game here that includes: elephant, white rhino, buffalo as well as giraffe, zebra, hartebeest, bushbuck, impala, warthogs, baboons and monkeys.

Dinner will then be served. Having traversed the National Park, the train exits from the Western Gate boundary and crosses the Sinde River, a tributary of the Zambezi. The locomotive then detaches itself from the front of the train and ‘runs around’ to the back of the train using the Sinde Siding and re-attaches itself on to the Observation Car, giving guests wonderful views of the locomotive in action. Depending on the time, the train manager will announce dinner and lead guests through to the dining carriages, where a five course meal, lovingly prepared and served by Sun International’s Royal Livingstone team, awaits.

At about 9:00/9:30 pm: The train will draw back into the Old Mulobezi Railway Offices. A guide will be waiting to transfer guests back to the hotel.
